March 21, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement thanking U.S. Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) for defending Congress’ constitutional power of the purse to offer policy riders in appropriations bills being challenged by members of the Senate:
“John Fleming gets it, he understands that one of the few ways of rolling back President Obama’s outrageous abuse of executive authority is by utilizing Congress’ constitutional power of the purse. Fleming’s statement in favor of utilizing policy riders in the appropriations process demonstrates once again that he is one of the true leaders in the battle to restore the constitutional separation of powers.”
